Uxorians frowned upon individuality, and in Green Man's own words, "On Uxor, all are one." Green Man was a misfit who rebelled against his society's anti-individualism mores, and longed for a personal identity. So when the extraterrestrials known as the Guardians of the Universe offered him a position as a member of their Green Lantern Corps, Green Man jumped at the chance.
Adventures in Vega
One of the complications of his choice was that Green Man could never again legally enter his home star system, because of the pact the Guardians had with the Psions of Vega, which prohibited the Corps presence in that sector. Although Green Man did enlist the aid of the Omega Men in attacking the nestworld of a group of humanoid arachnids called the Spider Guild a few light years outside the Vega system (for which he was reprimanded by the Guardians), he adhered to the pact more faithfully concerning matters within that system, as when he refused to help Earth Green Lanterns Kyle Rayner and Guy Gardner find the missing Lantern recruit Soranik Natu, who was traced to Vega.
As a member of the Corps, Green Man encountered many other beings in his adventures, such as the goddess X'Hal, who lived inside the star Vega; the whale-like viathans; the Psions, who performed experiments on Green Man when he was brought to their research center, Wombworld, which was modeled after a DNA strand; the Tamaraneans; and so on.
Return to the Corps
The Green Man later reappeared alive without explanation as the partner of the robot Stel, the Green Lantern of the planet Grenda, in Sector 3009. Green Man was one of the Lanterns who participated in the defense of Oa against the onslaught of Superboy-Prime.
He was later chosen for the Alpha Lantern Corps, the internal affairs division of the Corps.
